I usually don't read anthologies, but I was tempted to pick up this one because it included several of my favorite authors(although it turns out I had Candice Hern confused with Candace Proctor, LOL!) and also because the plot setup attracted me: all 4 of them start out with the same basic setup-hero is a military younger son, and heroine is a wallflower. In any case, I'm glad I read it because they were each long enough to develop some plot, and I found them all very sweet and enjoyable.
Enjoyable anthology with each story centering on a second son needing to marry to secure the family line, and a 'flawed' heroine. Although I couldn't get into Laurens' contribution, Balogh, D'Alessandro, and Hern offer hours of romantic, feel-good reading. I especially liked Hern's Fate Strikes a Bargain not only because it features a heroine who was born with a displaced hip but also that the author didn't create a 'solution' to her physical impediment. 3.5 stars.
